I have no shortage of skincare stuffs in my stash. I try lots and lots of products (so you don’t have to) and some I love, some I learn to love, some give me zits, some give me a rash, some make my skin peel. When a new Rodan+Fields regimen came across my beauty desk, I thought it might worth a try. The first Rodan+Fields product I ever used is Proactiv. I still use Proactiv from time to time, as do my daughters. My oily acne prone skin benefits from their cleanser and lotion when it’s feeling particularly oily or zitty. So Proactiv is always in my skincare cupboard. It’s simple no-nonsense skincare, and it’s easy to use. I like that. I like it even more now that I can buy it from a retail shop as well.
The Rodan+Fields Refine regime is simple and easy, and makes some pretty reasonable claims. The Refine Kit I have includes a clay cleanser/exfoliant, a refining/exfoliant toner, a daytime moisturizer with full spectrum SPF 30 protection, and a night cream that restores. From the Rodan+Fields website:
Redefine Daily Cleansing Mask:
Creamy, kaolin clay-based cleansing mask dries in two minutes, drawing impurities from pores without robbing skin of essential moisture. Fine dimethicone microbeads gently exfoliate to smoothe the skin without disrupting skin’s delicate moisture barrier.
Redefine Pore Minimizing Toner:
Exclusive combination of pore-clarifying ingredients minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores in this fast-acting, alcohol-free liquid vehicle. Gentle polyhydroxy acids exfoliate pore clogging dead skin cells while natural oligosaccharides help reduce the appearance of pores and prepares skin for the treatments that follow.
Redefine Overnight Restorative Cream:
An ultra-hydrating cream which replenishes skin’s natural moisturizing factors (NMFs) while you sleep for visibly firmer, less-lined skin in the morning. Moisture recycling complex of hyaluronic acid and glycerin prevent moisture loss while 12-hour, time-released antioxidants A, C and E replenish vital skin nutrients.
Triple Defense Treatment Broad Spectrum SPF30:
A moisturizing treatment with photostable broad spectrum SPF 30 protection. It contains a clinically proven concentration of powerful peptides to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and visibly firm skin. SHIELDrf provides effective broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and visibly decelerates the signs of photoaging that appear over time.
I love the Cleanser – it is a gentle exfoliating cleanser that my oily and sensitive skin loves. My skin feels fresh when I use it – not scrubbed. It says you can use it daily, however I use it a couple times a week which is perfect for me. I use the toner in the evening, and it makes my skin feels fresh as a daisy for the Overnight Restorative Cream. It feels terrific on the skin, and I do wake up with a glow. I will sometimes use it under my Garnier Miracle Sleep Cream, for extra moisture and radiance.
I use Dove Soap in the morning, then the Triple Defense Treatment Broad Spectrum SPF30. It feels moisturizing and my skin drinks it up. It works beautifully under makeup as well. If I need a little more moisture, or if I’m tired and dehydrated, I use my latest Vichy love – LiftActif Supreme (review to come).
I’ve been using Rodan+Fields Refine for a little over a month, and each product does what it promises. My skin is smooth and radiant, with no signs of irritation or breakouts, which is saying a lot! My skin feels smooth and fresh, and fine lines are less visible, which is probably a combination of the exfoliating and moisturizing properties of the products. There is a slight scent to all the products, but it’s soft and clean smelling and doesn’t last on the skin. I love all the products and would recommend them to anyone looking for a smoother glowing complexion!
All four products can be purchased on the Rodan +Fields website for $193 USD.
